Several miles to the north, on Highway 8 — the old Huron Road — is Seebach’s Hill and First St. John’s Lutheran Church.

But the really remarkable thing about Seebach’s Hill is the church’s old buggy barn. I have never seen one like it.

The huge barn — 260 by 54 feet! — clearly belonged to the old church but has somehow survived and become… a car barn. How many other rural churches do you know that have covered parking? And, by the way, is this still religious heritage or something else? Is this a case of adaptive re-use or just continued use accommodating changing technology?
